good job! PROS: it looks nice, i looked up the color scheme and you got that right, the propellers have five blades but you cant do that with legos, (they only look like spikes when the caterpillar dive is in use) you got a great shape to the hull. CONS: no antenna array. BUT EXCELLENT JOB!!!

I love the shape and design of this sub! As the film! Please come to see my Titan! subs, and particularly nuclear subs are under-represented on MOC pages.

Wow... Lots of people don't know what they're talking about. I'm currently doing a 1/144 scale model of the Red October and have gone through tons of pictures of the filming models as well as screen captures. I was looking for more when I stumbled upon your model. I always love LEGOs...=o) I can tell you that it is definitely two tones of gray, the lighter being on the bottom exactly as you have. Red October does have a towed sonar array. And although this doesn't particularly have to do with your model, Red October had five bladed screws, not six as one other commenter said... I think you did a great job. Considering all the photos I've been through and there are still details I'm not sure about, I say go for the artistic license excuse! Anyone who says they're an expert on what it looks like is either making it up or they must be Jesus.

one minor point. the typhoon class submarines dont have a towed sonar array (tear shaped pod) on top of the stern upper rudder. Bar that its excellent. Really captured the girth of the typhoon class very well indeed. good job.

Nice job overall, at least the colors match and it isn't ficticious. PROS: Very nice job, the color scheme is clean and accurate looking. CONS: The RED OCTOBER didn't have light grey paint below the waterline, in the movie and going by all current Russian Navy paint shcemes, the Typhoon class is painted in overall dark sea grey. Also compared to the scale, the submarine seems too thin from deck to keel, add maybe one or two layers of brick between the gray and black to make it appear thicker and more like the Typhoon class. Finally, the propellers on the Red october are six bladed and the blades are rather like spikes, i know it is hard to build accurate submarines out of legos as legos are mosty square and nothing on a submarine is square. Great job!
